With nearly 100 majors, the International Studies Program continues to be one of the most dynamic majors in the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences. The curriculum offers a broad, interdisciplinary background in international affairs drawing upon courses in economics, geography, history, political science, religious studies, sociology and anthropology, world languages, and more.

Our flexible major and minors provide a core foundation in international affairs. In addition to their General Education Foundations (GEF), students focus on an area of emphasis and a regional focus. Students can chose between two areas of emphasis – Security and Diplomacy or Global Connections. The Security and Diplomacy area of emphasis is for students focusing on national security or diplomacy. The Global Connections area of emphasis is for students interested in international business, international development, international environment, or global health. Majors then select one regional focus from Africa/Middle East, the Americas, Asia, or Europe. The curriculum can be closely integrated with study abroad programs, internships and service learning, international conferences, Model United Nations, and Peace Corps Prep to personalize your undergraduate experience.
